Has managing student behavior been causing you headaches and nightmares, do you often have to spend part of your teaching time trying to deal with disruptive students? Relax, it is no longer a problem, solution – ClassDojo.
Class Dojo is realtime student behavior managment system, which will help you:
- Improve student behavior and engagement by awarding and recording real-time feedback;
- Print or email beautiful behavior reports to easily engage parents and staff.
- Save time by recording behaviors and accomplishments right in class, with just one click: NO extra data entry required;
How it works:
As a teacher you get a free account on ClassDojo site, where you can set up classes copying and pasting bulk lists of students. Every student will have a box with an avatar and their name. Clicking on the box will give you options of positive and negative behaviors. Some positive behaviors would be – Participation, Helping Others, Creativity, Hard Work, Great Insight and custom positive behaviors that you can add yourself, I added PYP Learner Profiles. Negative behaviors would be – Disruption, Late, No Homework, Disrespect, Interrupting, Out of Chair and of course you can custom make some of your own.
With a single click on a positive behavior option you give student a point, and clicking on a negative behavior option takes off a point from the student. You can set up how much points should a student earn to succeed during a set period of a school academic year.
As mentioned above REPORT CARDS can be generated for each student and can be sent to parents to help them track and engage with their child’s behavioral progress.
Here is sample standard e-mail letter generated by ClassDojo that parents get:
I would like to share this report of Jung-Ki’s behavior from Sunday, 26th Feb 2012 to Wednesday, 29th Feb 2012 with you. The report is attached to this email.
I hope this is useful.
I’m using ClassDojo to track and help you engage with your child’s behavioral progress. This will have a big impact on how much they learn in class, and will help your children build good behavior and good academic results.
